Out-of-hours help is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays. To access out of hours help, you can go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111 if you need medical help now, but it's not an emergency.
You can also visit an urgent care service, such as an NHS walk-in centre, urgent care centre or minor injuries unit. These can provide treatment for minor injuries or illnesses, such as cuts, bruises and rashes.
Some urgent care services offer access to doctors, as well as nurses. But they're not designed for treating long-term conditions or immediately life-threatening problems.
You don't need to be registered and you don't need an appointment. Any member of the public can simply walk in to be seen, regardless of where they're registered. Some offer pre-booked appointments.
